sp2022 .40 grouping at 25 yards (skill level noob)

Hey everyone so I had spent some quality shooting time my 2022 .40 a couple nights ago. I was trying to get a feel for the trigger pull, and to see how the groups are..at 25 feet no problem, but 50 to 75 feet i was all low on the paper. i couldnt get it mark a spot that i wanted it too. most of my shots were really low at 75 feet and I felt i was compensating well enough for that distance but most shots were still really low.

any advice?

on another note..my rear sights to me seem to be marginalized to the left just a bit..my front sights are on center but my rears are to the left..is this normal also? can i center the rear sights myself? or is that an armorer type of job to do

Can you define all over the place??

Grouping well at 25 yards offhand can be difficult for even an accomplished shooter. Keep in mind that combat accuracy at 25 yards for most pistols is about 2 - 3 inch grouping mechanical accuracy. So with the shooter's abilities groups can be quite a bit larger.

Myself with my 9MM SP2022 I can usually put a full magazine of 25 rounds in a 5.5 inch target at 25 yards with maybe a couple rounds outside that.

Myself I find that I don't have to compensate for evlevation at 25 yards with my SIGs.

Here is a typical target for me that I shot at 25 yrds with my P226 though my vision is not that great at 25 yards and the target is kind of blurry.

I rarely shoot at a target at 25 yards - usually 7 - 15 yards.



Shooting the same pistol at 7 yards offhand.

I seriously doubt I could stay inside 5.5" at 25 yards.

But on my next range trip I intend to shoot some at 25 yards. Now since I have this Sig 228 Tack Driver.....I feel I may be up to it.

thanks for the response. My "all over the place" seems to be bigger than 5.5 inches in comparison to yours. I know that my skill isnt all that high and i expected it to be at least within the circles but looking at your picture at 25 yards in comparison to my 25 yards is all outside of the page or hitting that dirty bird and casey insignia. I gess it is just practice with me. I had thought that it was the sights being off center at first but will continue to practice.

For someone who claims to have a "skill level of NOOB", that target at 7 yards off hand is outstanding. I can recall a time when my 7 yard targets had groupings like the 25 yard target.
As for the sights, don't touch them if you shoot like that at 7 yards with it.

Which 25 yard range did you go to?
